    At this point the FA should look into Arsenal for intentionally losing games, you have to be trying to be this bad or really really not want to finish top 4.

    Imagine looking at the schedule before a season started and having the first 4 games be Everton, Watford, Palace and Wolves. We'd think it's a great way to start the season and expect to have 12 points after. Instead they've lost 3/4 to secure Champion League. Amazing

    Caley suggests that 3-1 is a little harsh:

    Seemingly yet another year of close but just not good enough. How many years have we been doing this now? New Manager who is probably trying his balls off. But overall... same club that comes up short and under - performs with a shitty owner that doesn’t care. So what if we win Europa and make CL. Rinse, wash, repeat. Today’s performance was PISS poor!

    Thanks for that analysis. But we've all known for some time that where we suck most is defensively. That trend developed under Wenger and still continues under Emery. We can only pray that Arsenal management, from owners on down to assistant coaches, have whatever epiphanies they need to have, in order to put serious emphasis behind improving us defensively. And it's not just buying players, which of course we need to do.

    Emery is not our guy. Trying hard is not enough

    Emery doesn't have any talent to work with. Best player on the team by far is Laca, For what he doesn't have in talent he makes up for with hard work effort.The current team is a lazy piece of shit honestly which is why Wolves can come out and kick our ass. We are easy pickings. Many, many players on the team with mediocre talent. Sorry . sell Ozil. Doesn't matter. We are so many light years behind a Man. City or Pool its laughable.

    Emery is working with Wenger's personnel for the most part and he's arguably done better with that compared to last season.

    Who Emery subs first at every opportunity?

    This team should be 3rd place right now. We only got two points this season from Wolves and Crystal Palace.


    And tbh, the best player on the team is the one going to Juventus. We have fallen apart since he got injured.

    If this was a big club, Emery would’ve been sacked already. Emery is a Europa League manager.

    I've already moved into the post Ramsey era in my mind. Why would I dwell in the past. Agreed AR is our best player but whats the point even raising his name at this point.........

    Old man had "dozens of jobs" in the world of football "thrown at his feet", and rather than managing or joining a front office, he took a f*cking job with FIFA!?!?

    Sounds like managing in Azerbaijan wasn't nearly as glamerous as deciding which technology company he ignored in 2014 should now become relevant in 2019....

    This is why the Palace game needed to be targeted for 3 points

    Arsenal were always going to struggle away at Everton and Wolves, not to mention still needing to go away at Leicester

    And conceded 6 goals

    yet had we managed to beat Palace, we'd still be 3rd despite so much crap

    The whole season has been scuppered by Emery's bad lineup for the final home game

    That’s fine, but Emery failed to integrate our best player most of this season.

    It's been interesting Utd with DDG

    Basically once you get into the "Ramsey Zone" you only have bad choices

    Either you have to pay the open market rate to resign your own player, or lose him for free

    Player has Win/WIn as he cashes in as free agent, or reups at free agent rate

    To avoid this, Utd needed to be prepared to sell DDG 18-24 mths ago

    Arsenal made the same mistake 3x

    Not for me. It's a great credit to Ramsey that in a situation where you wouldn't necessarily blame him for going through the motions, he's stood up to be counted, so well done for that.

    But right now the player that we need the most and don't have is Rob Holding.

    Yeah, this. It's kind of funny that Real has switched managers three times since Wenger got fired and Wenger hasn't got a sniff once.

    I don't think it's kind of thing we can be sure of before the event. I certainly wasn't expecting Ramsey to get an ATM truck full of money from Juventus.

    In the end, it's not anything we can afford to get too invested in. For differing reasons, we needed to move on from Wenger and Ramsey. We probably should move on from Ozil as well if we could but we probably can't. But even there, the fact that we went through all that drama over the winter has proven for anyone watching the club that they're not going to be handing out Ozil wages like candy.

    Ugh, I should neg rep you for citing Calvin in here. ;)

    Honestly, I find Emery confusing confounding concerning. At times we look so much better than last season and other times as lame or worse.

    If Arsenal behaved like a "big" club they wouldn't have the roster they have now, made up of attempted bargains instead of top rate talent.

    I'm not absolving Emery's faults and contributions to the current malaise but over the course of the past three years the bulk of this roster has revealed itself incapable of excelling beyond what we see today. Work rate, hustle, talent, reading of the game... In plenty of ways these guys show why they're at Arsenal instead of Barcelona or Bayern, as it were. The inability of some of them to be more of a leader on the field exacerbates this condition. We need someone with Wilshire's fire but Ramsey's demeanor, especially when they've been punched in the mouth by opposing teams.

    In the 2000's the Arsenal trademark was effort off the ball that kept opponents off balance and provided emphatic attacks from a variety of players. That's decided missing here on a consistent basis, and often just because the players aren't convinced, willing, or able.

    Is that his name? His takes are occasionally funny, but that's about it.

    He was a Brewhouse regular for a long time but moved to Chicago last summer. Your respective moving vans probably passed in the night. I like him just fine, and I'll give him credit for watching a ton of footy and being pretty knowledgeable despite never having kicked a ball in anger in anything higher than youth rec level.
